months old

Choose another age

At this age, your child may …

  • Adjust her posture as she moves, using furniture to steady herself
  • Catch a ball if it’s rolled right to him
  • Use deliberate gestures, like waving bye-bye or lifting arms to say, “Pick me up!”

With lots of love and praise, you’ll enjoy encouraging your nine-month-old to move on to new achievements. Toys that respond to actions will reward your baby with fun surprises … and reward you with an “I did it!” expression.

“There is something new to discover every day.”
